Full Text

The development of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) of the profunda femoris artery following dynamic hip screw (DHS) fixation is very rare. We present a 76-year-old female who had DHS for intertrochanteric hip fracture complicated by significant swelling of the right thigh associated with ecchymosis. A lower extremity Doppler ultrasound showed a right AVF likely arising from the profunda femoris artery [Figure 1] confirmed by computed tomography scan [Figure 2] and angiography [Figure 3]. Selective catheterization of a distal branch of the profunda femoris artery was performed, followed by coil embolization using 6 mm and 8 mm coils [Figure 4].{Figure 1}{Figure 2}{Figure 3}{Figure 4}
